Citing Public Health Threat, U.K. Bans DMAA Supplements

Filed September 5th, 2012 Laurie

A sports supplement that is highly popular with fitness fanatics has been pulled off the market in Britain over fears that it comes with deadly side effects.

The Jack3D beverage contains the stimulant dimethylamylamine, known as DMAA, which has been linked to hypertension, headaches, vomiting, stroke, and sometimes death.

The drink was recalled after the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) determined it was unlicensed and all other products containing DMAA must also be removed to protect the public’s safety.

The U.S. and Australia have also pulled Jack3D from their markets for the same reason. A man in Australia died after buying the supplement online.

Jack3D is known to boost energy, concentration, and metabolism. DMAA, however, is
typically used as a workout aid or dietary supplement, but it can narrow the arteries and raise the heart rate, and has been linked to everything from shortness of breath to heart attacks.

“Athletes who use sports supplements need to choose reputable manufacturers who can justify their claims with scientific evidence, and have their products screened to minimize the risk of testing positive for a substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List,” said Graham Arthur, director of Legal at UK anti-doping.
